A lake encircled by swaying reeds,
And flowers shaded by crimson blush.
Koi dance on in the crystal depths,
While butterflies lap the pollen's touch.

Warm rays sneak through the boughs' embrace,
And brush away the summer mist.
They land upon the lizard's flesh
That by the gentle breeze is kissed.

Two brothers frolic in the joy
And lounge upon the warming sand.
Troubles that once did disturb them
Just echo from a fading land.
